Optimus wins key international contracts
Aberdeen, January 26, 2014
Optimus Seventh Generation, an Aberdeen-based behavioural change consultancy, has secured three international contracts worth more than £300,000 ($494,310).
These latest contracts have added a further 10 positions to its 40-member team, and also is a foundation to exceed its 2013 turnover of £5.8million, up 40 per cent on 2012.
The consultancy specialises in helping clients implement significant behavioural changes and deliver operational excellence, said a statement.
Its clients include companies in Indonesia, Australia, West Africa, South America, Kurdistan and Singapore-based COSL Drilling Pan Pacific.
Derek Smith, chief executive, said: “The Indonesian contract with new client COSL Drilling Pan Pacific involves our consultants visiting the drill rig to conduct a ‘Culture of Care Diagnostic’ by observing workplace behaviours.
"This process will allow us to provide an evidence-based assessment of the safety culture and, together with the clients’ team, our safety coaches will develop an intervention plan focusing on what needs to be done to add value and implement real and lasting change.”
The work secured on the seismic vessels is the continuation of a long standing global customer relationship, he said.
The contract to design and develop a safety management system for use in Kurdistan continues the international growth of the company’s safety services business.
“We continuously aim to support clients in delivering a meaningful evolution of safety culture and behaviour, but are now well positioned to help deliver the systems that underpin workplace safety and to provide high quality HSE Managers and Advisers to operate these systems,” said Smith.
“We moved into a purpose built training facility in Aberdeen two years ago to keep pace with industry demand. In 2013 we trained over 3,000 delegates and received positive feedback on the quality of our training courses. For the first time we will be running Open Courses and have launched an eLearning programme enabling candidates to complete Nebosh certificates and diplomas and IOSH Managing Safely as distance learning online.” - TradeArabia News Service
